Six Steinberg Controllers In One Bundle

Steinberg has released the CMC Six-Pack, a new bundle deal comprising the  CMC line-up of USB controllers.

Stefan Schreiber, product marketing manager at Steinberg, told us, "The CMC Six-Pack is the most flexible controller setup ever made for Cubase: it's a touch-based mixer; it's a handy pad controller; it's a transport control you won't want to miss after the first try.We're offering Cubase users the opportunity to get their hands on some really great controllers at a price that's unbeatable: over 50% less than if bought separately!"

Here's the full details in Steinberg's own words...

The CMC Six-Pack is made up of all six controllers designed to offer users a modular controller experience. Arranging the units in a way that best suits the personal needs when using Cubase makes the CMC series a very customizable hardware control system. Each of the six slim-sized USB controllers provides tactile control over Cubase features.

The CMC-CH channel controller houses 16 illuminated buttons, one rotary encoder and a touch fader, offering immediate access to channel-relevant functions in Cubase.

The CMC-FD fader controller features four high-precision touch faders with LED-based metering and solo/mute function to provide efficient mixer control.

The CMC-QC quick controller boasts 13 illuminated buttons and eight rotary encoders for flexible assignment to Cubase controls, such as mapping to parameters of effects and EQ.

The CMC-PD pad controller features 16 highly responsive backlit pads and one rotary encoder, ideal for sample-based music performances.

The CMC-TP transport controller houses 17 buttons and a touch slider, tailored to the transport controls in Cubase.

The CMC-AI controller comes with Steinberg's AI Knob and ten function buttons for convenient volume level control, jog control, browsing and adjusting many plug-in and Cubase parameters.

Agreed..There seems to be a Big disconnect btw the EU and US small (aka bedroom) studio wants. The EU uses preferre a small foot print controller. Where as in the US, most want at least 16 /24 faders to start! Its all about the looks in the US.. :)

Would this also mean that they are selling the stock and abandoning this product? I saw the German giant Thomann stopped selling the frames... Maybe rather go with Euphonix?
